       Hands On USA and Fairytale Brownies Join Hands for Katrina Relief
         Fairytale to Donate Brownies for Displaced Families in Mississippi


In the months since Hurricane Katrina, a huge relief effort and outpouring of donations
have helped the tens of thousands of families whose lives were destroyed by the storm.
However, there is still a great deal to be done in those areas worst hit, including Biloxi
and Gulfport, Mississippi.

Fairytale Brownies, a gourmet brownie bakery based in Phoenix, will team up with
Hands On USA to distribute brownies to these communities the week of December 26th.
“We hope our brownies will bring a smile to those displaced by Katrina,” says Eileen
Spitalny, founder and CEO of Fairytale Brownies. “But more importantly, we hope this
gesture shows that the rest of the country has not forgotten about them, especially during
the holidays.”

Hands On USA is a non-profit group dedicated to disaster response and relief.
Volunteers from around the country are clearing debris, gutting homes, removing mold
and distributing food, water, and supplies to those in need.. “We are thrilled to join with
Fairytale Brownies to send this message of hope and happiness, which can be just as
precious as brick and mortar at time like this,” says Suzanne Stahl, a volunteer with
Hands On USA.

These efforts are just the beginning. In the coming months, much work will be put into
clearing debris, moving people out of tents and into trailers, stabilizing the base
infrastructure of the coastal cities of Mississippi and providing not only life essential, but
emotional support to the survivors of Katrina - who are very determined to regain
normalcy in their lives.
